Patch strips was born when James Dutton (founder) noticed that while trying to protect his son’s adventure wounds his skin was in fact reacting badly to a common wound covering and making the wound worse. James set off on his mission to find out why. He was shocked to discover that there is an array of chemicals that lurk in the common plasters. He became motivated to find better alternatives. Patch strips are made from bamboo, a rapidly renewable resource that grows many times faster than trees, uses much less water, produces up to 35 more oxygen, and doesn’t need pesticides or herbicides! Patch uses certified organic components – so you know it’s only the good stuff! A wound care product that won’t cause nasty skin reactions and will help heal the wounds.
